Synopsis

‘Powerful and perceptive . . . belongs on the shelves – and in the hearts and minds – of leaders everywhere’ Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of To Sell is Human

From Kim Scott, author of the revolutionary New York Times bestseller Radical Candor, comes Just Work: How to Confront Bias, Prejudice and Bullying to Build a Culture of Inclusivity – that will help you recognize, attack and eliminate workplace injustice – and transform our careers and organizations in the process.

We – all of us – consistently exclude, underestimate and under-utilize huge numbers of people in the workforce even as we include, overestimate and promote others, often beyond their level of competence. Not only is this immoral and unjust, it’s bad for business. Just Work is the solution.

Just Work by Kim Scott reveals a practical framework for both respecting everyone’s individuality and collaborating effectively. This is the essential guide leaders and their employees need to create more just workplaces and establish new norms of collaboration and respect.

In this powerful and perceptive book, Kim Scott offers a bold vision – a workplace where respect and collaboration prevail over domination and conformity. Just Work is a sparkling combination of moral courage and practical solutions. It belongs on the shelves – and in the hearts and minds – of leaders everywhere

In debates over workplace inequality, we don’t talk enough about the ‘how’ – how to respond to a boss or co-worker who acts unfairly, how exactly that person should change their behaviour. Just Work helps answer the how. Kim Scott provides actionable, effective ways for fighting discrimination and harassment with engagement, collaboration and respect

Scott’s experiences leading teams at Google and Apple led to this book, which espouses a workplace culture where leaders care deeply about their employees and challenge them to be their best selves
